LA-to-UK Style: More Than Influencing

​​​Self-expression and empowerment through fashion defined the conversations with renowned influencers during “LA-to-UK Style,” the flagship virtual convention from enthusiast network theTUNDRA. The one-day online event (https://thetundra.com/conventions/la-uk-style) connected influencers and experts from across the pond with speakers sharing ideas and advice from both the United Kingdom and Los Angeles, two global capitals of culture and style. 

The event, which included live audience participation and Q&As, reflected on what it means to be an influencer in 2020. Attendees saw speakers challenge the unconscious bias that undermines the influencer industry with authenticity, expertise and an honest desire to share. The conversations felt incredibly intimate, as if the viewer was in the room with the speaker.

Hosted by influencer and musician Anie Delgado, the nine impactful conversations explored the impact of geopolitics on fashion around the world, with each speaker sharing personal stories of challenge and growth to encourage viewers to take their own risks in the industry. Each spoke on a different style-related topic, from the influence of motherhood on clothing choices to why diversity is such an essential element of online content creation. 

Kenika Gumbs, an influencer based in Manchester, kicked off the sessions with a frank discussion of the challenges she has faced in the UK fashion world, particularly as a woman of color. She shared stories of dealing with the pay gap and a striking lack of inclusion, noting a shift this year as the Black Lives Matter movement has taken hold. 

“I do hope, moving forward, these things change because it’s really upsetting and sometimes that can really bring down other people who want to work within the fashion industry,” Gumbs said, encouraging brands to use a more diverse array of models in their campaigns. 

“There needs to be more of an open market,” Gumbs added. “Honestly, you see other types of girls doing a good job, but it’s like, ‘That girl with the curly hair, the big afro — give that girl an opportunity.’”

Kinya Claiborne, a style influencer and founder and editor-in-chief of LA-based STYLE & SOCIETY Magazine, echoed Gumb’s comments later that afternoon, addressing the importance of diversity in content. Claiborne said her company embraces and promotes diversity in photo choices and editorial decisions. “We talk about the topic of diversity and I see diversity as really robust — it’s not just black and white, it’s truly inclusive,” she said. 

Like Gumbs, Claiborne encouraged consumers to seek out brands that are actually doing the work and not just making performative gestures towards inclusion. 

“The Black Lives Matter movement in the U.S. has really challenged brands in beauty and fashion to really think and look outside of the box,” Claiborne said. “And it has challenged them to ensure that the influencers they’re using are diverse. Their ad campaigns that they’re spending billions of dollars on — [they need to] make sure that the people are reflective of their customer base.”

Consumer responsibility was a key theme throughout the event, with many speakers urging viewers to support and promote local businesses, as well as BIPOC-owned businesses. LA influencer Camly Nguyen, whose father owned an auto repair shop, spoke passionately about how to support local small businesses. She recommended buying gift cards, writing positive Yelp reviews and sharing the love on social media. 

“I’ve always just really loved small business because anyone who has a dream, who has an idea, can turn it into reality and start something that’s completely their own,” Nguyen said. “During this time, especially with the pandemic, there’s such an importance in supporting our local communities and supporting small businesses.”

For many of the speakers, both in the UK and in LA, finding success in fashion has been about hard work, dedication and grassroots growth. These women found their success by believing in themselves and paving their own paths, turning childhood dreams into genuine careers with persistence and passion. Kandace Cornell, the Francophone influencer behind The Chic American, discussed her journey from fashion editor to creating her own brand. “I encourage everyone to find their own unique blend of what makes you,” Cornell said.

Ashley Kuczenski shared a vibrant presentation on how Old Hollywood has influenced fashion throughout the decades, revealing helpful and practical styling tips for each era. When asked where she sees fashion going during her Q&A with viewers, Kuczenski was quick to emphasize that style should come from within. 

“I think that fashion right now is all about individualism and also about body positivity,” she said. “I see a lot of women on Instagram, especially, as well as on the street just owning their own look and wanting to be a unique individual. That’s really where I see the future going. Not necessarily huge trends but creating their own trends.”

London-based model and influencer Danubia Sousa agreed, revealing that motherhood has helped her to embrace her changing body and allowed her to restyle her wardrobe in a way that reflects who she is now. “Fashion is about expressing yourself but, at the same time, you have to feel comfortable,” she said, urging viewers to try new things and to listen to their bodies. “You have to feel confident. If you don’t show how you feel with your clothes you’re not going to send a positive message.”

Sousa also connected her own fashion evolution with her journey as a mother, noting that she hopes her daughter Mia will grow up to “wear whatever she wants.” Speaking with Delgado during her Q&A, Sousa confirmed that there is no one way to present yourself as a woman — nor should there be — which is an ideal she wants to pass along to Mia. 

“I was the one who was different in my family,” Sousa said, adding that her style is very dissimilar than that of her twin sister. “I loved to wear fashion things, different things. I wanted to be like fashion and [have] crazy style and everyone was like ‘Uhh.’ But it worked in my favor.” 

In the end, the theme of the day all went back to something Gumbs said as the event opened: there is a chance for everyone to break into fashion with enough passion and authenticity. Style is more than what you wear; it’s who you are. 

“There is room for everyone,” Gumbs affirmed. “There is always that opportunity in the fashion industry, especially in the UK. It’s about making that fashion speak as you want to be heard. Just be yourself because there’s no one else in this world who can be you.”

DeviceSHIELD fournira gratuitement des renseignements sur les risques à 90 % des entreprises en ligne pour aider à lutter contre la fraude et à prévenir des pertes financières moyennes de 200 000 $ en raison de cyberattaques¹ 

MENLO PARK, Californie, 25 novembre 2020 /PRNewswire/ — SHIELD, la plus importante entreprise de cybersécurité au monde spécialisée dans la cyberfraude et la vérification de l’identité, a lancé aujourd’hui DeviceSHIELD. Il s’agit d’une solution contre la cyberfraude conçue spécialement pour lutter contre l’augmentation des attaques frauduleuses à l’encontre des entreprises en ligne pendant la pandémie de COVID-19. La solution fournit des renseignements utiles en temps réel pour repérer les faux dispositifs et protéger les entreprises contre les fraudeurs, les atteintes à la réputation et les transactions frauduleuses.

Pendant la pandémie de COVID-19, la cyberfraude est devenue l’activité criminelle qui connaît la croissance la plus rapide, ce qui expose les entreprises et les consommateurs à des risques accrus. Aujourd’hui, les consommateurs effectuent davantage de transactions numériques et utilisent de plus en plus d’applications en ligne. SHIELD a cerné plusieurs secteurs clés plus touchés par la cyberfraude depuis le début de la pandémie de COVID-19. Notamment les services à la demande comme la livraison de nourriture et la réservation de voiture avec chauffeur, le commerce électronique et les plateformes de marché, les jeux en ligne, les porte-monnaie électroniques, la fidélisation et les offres de « cashback », les services bancaires en ligne et le divertissement.

Au cours de la dernière année, les outils qu’utilisent les pirates informatiques se sont également perfectionnés. Les fraudeurs utilisent maintenant des émulateurs, des cloneurs d’applications, des réseaux privés virtuels et des systèmes de spoofing du système de positionnement mondial (GPS) des appareils mobiles pour commettre des fraudes.

« Plus il y a de transactions en ligne, plus les vulnérabilités à la cyberfraude sont importantes, et cela est plus que jamais d’actualité dans le contexte de la COVID-19, a déclaré Justin Lie, président-directeur général de SHIELD. Près de la moitié (43 %) des attaques en ligne visent maintenant les petites entreprises, et seulement 14 % d’entre elles sont activement prêtes à se défendre2. Nous avons créé une technologie pour protéger les secteurs en ligne qui, selon nous, sont les plus touchés par la COVID-19. Toutefois, toutes les entreprises qui comptent moins de 100 000 utilisateurs actifs par mois la recevront gratuitement, ce qui équivaut à environ 90 % de toutes les entreprises en ligne. »

SHIELD s’est engagé à lutter contre les répercussions économiques découlant de la pandémie de COVID-19. Le nombre de fraudeurs qui dissimulent l’identité en ligne de leurs appareils a augmenté à un rythme inattendu pendant la pandémie, ce qui rend les petites et moyennes entreprises particulièrement vulnérables. Les solutions conventionnelles de lutte contre la cyberfraude ont tendance à n’analyser que les attributs de surface et sont particulièrement inefficaces avec les appareils mobiles, ne permettant pas d’éliminer les menaces les plus subtiles et les plus furtives.

DeviceSHIELD est actuellement la seule technologie qui utilise l’ADN d’un dispositif pour identifier les utilisateurs malveillants, ce qui lui permet de détecter les fraudes avec une précision et une cohérence inégalées. Déployé en quelques minutes, DeviceSHIELD analyse des milliers d’attributs pour identifier un appareil, peu importe le nombre de fois dont il change son apparence, et indique exactement quels outils malveillants sont utilisés. La solution possède une fonction unique appelée SHIELD Sentinel qui lui permet de dresser continuellement le profil du risque tout au long d’une session utilisateur, une autre première dans le secteur. Elle s’appuie également sur le réseau de SHIELD, connu sous le nom de Global Intelligence Network, qui compte plus de sept milliards d’appareils et 500 millions d’utilisateurs sur six continents. Elle est donc en mesure de protéger un dispositif contre de nouveaux types inconnus de fraudes de manière proactive.

GGV Capital, Future Shape de Tony Fadell, Temasek, Wavemaker Partners et Tao Zhang sont des investisseurs de SHIELD. Les solutions de SHIELD sont actuellement utilisées par des entreprises mondiales comme Razer, Alibaba, Scalefast, Yamibuy, PayMaya et Sea Group pour lutter contre la cyberfraude.

À propos de SHIELD 

SHIELD est la première entreprise de cybersécurité au monde à se spécialiser dans les solutions de cyberfraude et de vérification d’identité. Les solutions de SHIELD vont de la prévention de la fraude à la sécurité du réseau, en passant par le renseignement sur le crédit et la vérification de l’identité. Possédant des bureaux dans le monde entier, SHIELD jouit de la confiance de superapplications, de plateformes de commerce électronique et de services de réservation de voiture avec chauffeur de premier plan partout dans le monde. Grâce à la reconnaissance des tendances et au profilage continu des risques, SHIELD fournit des renseignements utiles sur les dispositifs et des signaux en temps réel qui permettent aux entreprises d’évoluer en toute sécurité.
